New Vancouver-based band, Stock Joker, formed earlier this year in response to a business deal gone bad between GT Advanced Technologies and Apple that cost investors billions of dollars. Lead vocalist Rodger Champagne was among that number and wanted an avenue to promote responsible capitalism.

“Both companies decided to act irresponsibly,” Champagne says. “They chose to put their wallets ahead of their employees and stock holders.”

The band’s debut single, Crimea River, pokes fun at Vladimir Putin, one of the world’s most irresponsible capitalists. The video was filmed at Brian Adam’s Warehouse Studio in Vancouver.

lyrics

CRIMEA RIVER
(Rodger Champagne)

Oh I'm raging, raging in my head
Stole another's glory and called it mine instead.
Drank the wine of Babylon
Embraced the madness that it held
Never loved you Yalta, there was always someone else.

Ain't no crazy red machine
All I want is Georgia
Ain't no crazy red machine
All I want is you.

Marching down by the river side
I met a former lover, she looked so fine
She asked me to walk with her by the sea, the Black Sea

She wants more I can just tell
I will take her home to mother she can meet the family as well
Yalta it's over for you and me
So Crimea River

Ain't no crazy red machine
All I want is Georgia

Drank the wine of Babylon
Embraced the madness that it dealt
Never loved you Yalta
There was always someone else

Back in USS
Back in USS
Back in USSR

Ain't no crazy red machine
All I want is Georgia.
